Arkansas coach Bret Bielema

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas has fired Bret Bielema only minutes after the Razorbacks lost to Missouri in a wild, back-and-forth game. Missouri inched ahead with five seconds to go.

The firing came within the hour after the loss.

The Razorbacks finished the year at 4-8.

Bielema had a 29-34 record over five seasons at Arkansas and led the team to three straight bowl appearances. He came to the SEC from Wisconsin.
